    I want to build a cupola 4 feet long, 3 feet wide made of vinal, with glass windows all around, copper roof ,two lanterns and a weather vane. Are there free plans available? The roof it’s going on is 36 feet long with a 5 to 7 pitch.

    Thank you

      Wayne,
      Unfortunately, a free cupola plan is one of the more difficult to locate. I am not sure of the reason, but I would suggest that you locate a decent book on Cupola building from a site like Amazon.

      Personally, if I were building what you are planning to, I would make an effort to modify the above plan.

      Sorry that I couldn’t be of more assistance. Please let us know if you are able to locate something.

    I have a four sided hip roof on my house that does not have a peak. Instead it ends short with a 4ft by 4ft square piece of plywood on top of it. It looks like something was there at one point and i would like to put something there since i will be replacing the roof next week. do you have any plans for a cupola that would fit there? the dripedge is appx 30 ft on all four sides.
